The Arkansas Agriculture Department's Forestry Commission (AFC) is sponsoring a Smokey Bear "Shout Out" contest.

The contest for the fictional bear created as a symbol for forest fire prevention begins Feb.11 and ends April 19 to celebrate Smokey's 75th birthday.

Elementary classes across the state are invited to record a short video with their birthday wish and to share it with AFC and the Arkansas Agriculture Department's (AAD) social media sites for a chance to win a birthday party with the bear.

Here's how to enter the contest:

  • Make sure the school name and class can be clearly heard in the video
  • Keep it short (15-30 seconds)
  • Like AFC and AAD Facebook pages: www.facebook.com/ArkansasForestryCommission and www.facebook.com/ArkAgricultureDepartment
  • Post your video to your school’s Facebook page, making sure to add #SmokeyBear75
  • Share the video, via messenger, with both pages
  • ADD says videos may also post it on your school’s twitter page and tag us @ARDeptofAgricul and @ARForestryComm, again making sure to add #SmokeyBear75
  • Send an email to marketing@agriculture.arkansas.gov with the name of the school, city, county, what class is in the video, how many students are in the class and the teacher’s name, email and phone number

The agriculture department says eight winners will be randomly selected for the birthday party which will be held during the first two weeks of May, befog the end of the school year.
